Camp Okoboji's Traveling VBS exists to supplement the ministry of the LC-MS congregations in the Iowa District West by providing them with a five-day program that will provide participants the opporunity to experience God's grace, love, and guidance through Bible Study, interaction with energetic camp staff, skits, games, arts & crafts, and other camp-related activities

Here are the following goals of Camp Okoboji's Traveling VBS:

Hear the Gospel
At the heart of the entire program is the desire to provide an atmosphere for children to hear of the great love our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ has for them. By the power of the Holy Spirit, the children are able to be strengthened in faith and knowledge of their Savior.

Assist Congregations in Outreach to Communities
Invite neighborhood children and friends of members as well as children of the congregation. With good follow-up, Traveling Day Camp/Camp VBS can be an effective tool for outreach.

Provide Christian Role Models

aged Christian role models and healthy activities for nurturing their faith.

Introduce and Further Invest in Partnership of Camp Okoboji
